DX9 vs DX10 screenshot.

This is why motherfucking 360 and the rest of them cant run DX10 games.




Look at that. The difference in the water. The difference in the reflections in the water. The mountain in the background with shadows from the clouds. The light streaming through them. This DX10 lads. Come mid next year, I'm buying a motherfucking DX10 card. Is ON!

the DX9 water has been making me made, it looks like Jello and it looks like if I would jump in it, I would get absorbed into it or something. Good difference though.

The water, the relections in the water, and the clouds n lights look good on DX10, but also i can't tell any difference in the trees, i'm guessing that's because of the distance they are away. And the mountain's noticably different, with dx9 it looks as if a skin was stretched over it.

OH MY GOD! That is trully amazing. Looks like I'll be shelling about another 500 dollars for a card within the next two years. That is in-fuckin'-credible

I hope that's not exagerated, but it just appears way too good to be true.

Do you have vids?

No vids. But by going by past examples of DX8 vs 9 and 9 vs 10, this is pretty much what we will be expecting. I never see doctoring going on with technology in the PC side of thing.

I am so getting a high end card for sure, if it isn't over 500 CDN or at least around that.

Holy mother of all thats... damn. Even though thats a benchmark the fact that its directx.... damn. Alucard do you have a small list of dx10 games? Is crysis one of them? I bet it is that game would have to be. Direct X is just code... what are the new video cards that are going to use it? List anyone?
